7:02 am
oakland, oakland airport and i think mountain view are the closest to set records. tahoe, 54 yesterday. a record high in southern california. upper 80 to near 90 for some. 70 would tie a record for oakland. sure looks like it. high pressure wins out on the west coast in a big way. as that builds, that drives cold air into the middle of the country. too much energy for us to get here. i guess enjoy it while you can. temperatures will be way above average. low 40s for some. upper 40s to near 50 in brentwood. higher clouds last couple of days lifting out of the picture. high clouds, hazy. we're starting off cool. it will be warm in the south bay and also on the coast from half moon bay down to monterey. it looks to be warm with upper 70s for some. all right, sal. i guess the best we can do is enjoy it. it will be pretty warm. the only thing you can do is enjoy it and hope for rain. let's take a look at the commute now. i want to start off with the golden gate bridge because traffic on the golden gate
7:03 am
bridge does look good. but if you are getting off the golden gate bridge and driving on the new doyle drive, there is a new crash right near the palace of fine arts. i'm gonna put it on a map here for you. let's go to the maps. i want to show you. the new doyle drive section there -- you can see all of the red. i'm gonna put the icon right here. that's where the accident is. it's on richardson and francisco. most people think of richardson as lombard there. it's right in front of the pam list of fine arts -- palace of fine arts. an overturned vehicle. if you are driving south off the golden gate bridge, getting down to the city, you may strongly want to consider using park presidio if you can do that without going too far out of the way. the other drive will be a mess. let's go to the bay bridge toll plaza, that's backed up to the macarthur maze. 20 to 25-minute delay getting into san francisco. it is 7:03. back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. we just received new information and a photo of the man who was shot and killed by san jose police.

7:05 am
they say they ordered him to drop his weapon but instead he charged at them. that's when the officers opened fire. watkins was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. here is what we were told by his fiance's mother. >> he called 911. he called them himself. you know, that's -- that was somewhat of his plea of asking for help. >> reporter: why did he call 911 himself? >> i have no idea, honey. the boy was -- he was distressed. he was -- something i had never seen before. i didn't know things would get to this point. >> reporter: watkins used to live in the home. we're told that he had a 2-year- old daughter that he was distressed. it was some sort of call for help. she said she begged officers not to shoot. they are questioning why police didn't shoot him before his waist. a spokesperson said officers are trained to stop the threat.
7:06 am
police collected evidence at the scene and conducted interviews with witnesses. again, they are really trying to piece this all together. the two officers are on administrative leave. we're told they've been with the department between seven to eight years. i've also reached out to police for an update and we are still waiting to hear back. back to you. >> thank you, janine. 7:06. police in milpitas have identified someone they call a person of interest in last week's hit-and-run crash that killed a 14-year-old girl. they are searching for this man. 23-year-old alex alkazar. they say he owned the car involved in the crash with a garbage truck. but police don't know if he was driving. the crash happened last wednesday morning. investigators followed a trail of debris and found his car a half-mile away. the body of a 14-year-old girl was found next to the car. police say she died from injuries suffered in the crash. if you have any information

welcome back. new this morning, a breakthrough in marathon peace talks aimed at ending the crisis in ukraine. all parties in the talks have agreed to a cease-fire beginning at midnight on saturday along with an agreement for both sides to pull back heavy weapons.
7:16 am
russian president vladimir putin is involved in the talks along with the ukrainian president and the leaders of france and germany. if the cease-fire holds, it could end a ten-month conflict that's killed more than 5,000 people. most of them civilians. 7:16. right now, the head of the fbi, james comey, is talking publicly now about the really hot issue of race relations in america. we're listening live. we'll listen in for just a moment. >> most of us take for granted. a tragedy of american life, one that most citizens are able to drive around because it doesn't touch them, is the young people in those neighborhoods, too often inherit a legacy of crime and prison. >> again, these are -- this is the fbi director, james comey, talking live. he is speaking at georgetown university. he's talking about the relationship,le controversial relationship, between police and african-americans after the deadly confrontations in
7:17 am
ferguson, missouri and in new york city. now, the new york times reports in his speech, he will say, among other things, that areas where nonwhite people commit a majority of the crimes, the police can become cynical and develop "mental shortcuts that lead them to be more scrutinized by minority groups." this is james comey speaking at georgetown university. more details later on. 7:17. it's being called an air bag for a bullet. police officers in ferguson, missouri, they are the first to try it out. it's a new less lethal technology. take a look. the device is called the alternative. it's made by a company in san diego. an officer attaches that device to a gun. a metal bulb captures the fired bullet and slows it down to one- fifth the speed that reduces the force as it strikes.
7:18 am
now, the release of this new device comes as police all over the count -- the county and country are facing a lot of scrutiny in protests over the killings of unarmed suspects. >> this is something that we just happen to run across, especially the considering the outcry of saving lives. even lives of people you are trying to apprehend. this might be something that was worth looking into. >> now, some former officers say they are not sure if the police can actually deploy that device fast enough in a life-or- death emergency. but so far, it's not been tested in a real-life situation. 7:18. police say a man shot a san diego tv sports anchor ten times in a dispute over the painting of the anchor's house. mike montana surrendered to police tuesday night. police say he fired several shots through the back window of kyle's car tuesday afternoon outside his home. kyle is recovering at the hospital.

his coworkers says the anchor hired montana to paint the outside of his house but was not satisfied with the work. so he paid him for what had been done and then took him off the job. montana has been charged with attempted murder. 7:19. sal was telling us something just happened, breaking news. what happened with caltrain? >> it was a train that hit a person, dave and tori and now caltrain has major delays. we're going to morgan hill and emado avenue. caltrain hit and killed a pedestrian and now the system is shut down in the area. the system is not completely shut down everywhere but there are going to be delays because the trains go all the way down to gilroy and then turn around. so right now, vta is honoring caltrain tickets. give yourself extra time if you use caltrain. there's no word on when they will have it cleared up. but they do have an investigation going on when a train hits a person on the tracks. this happens a lot more than we
7:20 am

7:23 am
temps. 70s for many here including sonoma, novato, san rafael. santa rosa, petaluma, gary says moderate to heavy fog just formed. there is a little bit of fog out there. 70 in oakland. that would tie a record high. 77 san jose, 73. not a record but that's way above average. low 70s for many. even half moon bay, that's 70. if you want to go to stinson, bodega bay, go. warm. >> really? >> yes. >> t-shirt and sunglasses. sunscreen. >> what are you gonna do? 7:23. it's. this is a story -- this is a story that got meet puzzled. popular workout wear. why one montana congressman thinks yoga pants should be illegal. another sea lion found stranded in the bay. we'll tell you how drivers helped a park ranger rescue
